Hydroseeding as a method is one that has quite a host of benefits that it comes with and as such, telling where to start with the mention of the benefits may be a bit of a challenge. Some of the benefits that make this seeding method a nod when it comes to making a choice of the many options are such as cost effectiveness, reliability, compatibility, flexibility and overall effectiveness.
As a matter of fact, this is one method of seeding that actually compares to none of the methods one may have known and as such have been detailed in the following lines. The first thing that we will take a look at are some of the benefits of hydroseeding over the traditional broadcast methods of seeding.
First is the fact that hydroseeding happens to be more effective as compared to the traditional broadcast seeding method and this is for a number of reasons. One is the effectiveness of the mulch as one of the techniques to seeding. In fact, you will hear hydroseeding and hydromulching being used interchangeably all thanks to the many benefits and effectiveness that it so affords as a mulching technique for seeding. Mulch, as is known to all, is so important for effective seeding.
One of the most obvious problems that the traditional broadcast seeding method and mulch application has been unable to attend to is that of preventing premature evaporation. This happens to be so even in as much as one of the greatest needs for your grass to grow being mulch and moisture availed by the mulch. As such, for you to achieve the most of your grown grass, you need to ensure that you have such good seeding that retains as much moisture for as long as is possible.
This is particularly where hydroseeding as a technique comes in and offers as much benefit as it not only ensures that there is such sufficient moisture laid down with the seed but as well the hydroseed coating as well ensures that there is as little evaporation of the moisture far much more than what would be alternatively achieved by the traditional straws. The other reason why it is so advantageous to use the hydroseeding technique lies in the fact that the traditional straw coverings will in most cases have with them some bit of “weed seed” in them. Moreover, hydromulch often has a better performance when it comes to the need to protect against soil erosion. Looking at the breakdown process, you will as well appreciate hydroseeding as beneficial as it adds to the humus content of the soil.
